million of their money and predicted a dead certain romney victory, it's hardly surprising that republicans are not happy about his latest project, is it? >> no, you're right. it's not surprising that they're not happy, but i would have to say that what karl rove is undertaking and whether he's the right messenger here remains to be seen but the project he's undertaking is vital for the republican party's survival. they want to continue being a national party as opposed to a regional party coming out of the south, then they're going to have to elect candidates to the house, to the senate, and ultimately to the presidency who can win national elections. >> well, karen, karl rove's victory project is barely off the ground, but it seems they've already got their first target in mind. it's iowa congressman steve king. in the words of a top aide to mr. rove, quote, we're concerned about steve king's todd akin problem. all of the things he said are going to be hung around his neck. karen, aside from the fact that mr. king refers to undocumented immigrants as lazy dogs, suggested

or the process but once they realized it did not have that much to do with whether obama did well or mitt romney did well and had more to do with the two of them, that kind of went away, but the intensity of it was because there was this dramatic difference, with what happened? the moderator did not do this -- i now like to be criticized, it's not one of my favorite things to be but -- as i said, it dissipated and is gone, and most of the people who did the criticizing, many of them have come to me afterward and said, i am sorry. >> he said of the moderator should be seen little and heard even less, and in use of the moderator should stay out of the way of the flow. that being a very valid point of view, why not challenge a candidate who, you are listening to someone hide something beyond reality or live or simply mislead the public? why not take that among yourself? >> i would if those were the only events in the course of a presidential election. by the time you get to october, we got to october 2012, the campaign had been going on two years. and this is a lot of the process but this is not al

strategy of the obama administration and i will talk a walk while mitt romney lost, he didn't do anything. the reason the last uses distractions like binder that big bird and this nonsense is contraception so we don't pay attention to the fact the economy blows. economy is horrible. everybody knows the economy is horrible and the economy has not begun to recover any time since the let's talk about condos, let's talk about essentially how the left ran the campaign. we can not be sidetracked by that. we are always playing defense because you're a bad person and natural human instinct is someone says you are a bad person the natural human instinct is to say no i am not. i am not a bad person. why are you saying that? i am not a racist. how can you call me -- no evidence for that. the first instinct needs to be go on the offensive. they are the real racists for defacing the term racism to apply for things that clearly and definitely not racist. if you call something a basic economic policy anti-semitic, had nothing to do with jews, that is an anti-semitic move because your watering down anti-

in the context of this play in the era of ann romney building up for his run for the white house. >> yes. i remember leading up to it, romney was not even a figure in politics that was -- i guess he had made that run in 2008, but it was not one of those things where he was the front runner. we had not even gotten to that stage yet when i opened in 2010. but i remember a "newsweek" audible coming up talking about "the year of the mormon," and it had romney' s base on it. i remember wondering if we had somehow manifested this reality, or is it: it's the adults that all of these things are converging at once and this truly is the mormon moment. i question that a little bit because it was strange. it is rare that any pop cultural event will have such crossover appeal that book of mormon had. it is even stranger that a musical, seen by 1100 people per night, gets that type of appeal. for me, it was one of those wow moments, where this was bigger than any of us thought it would be. i do not think it influenced the election in any way, and i do not think it influenced people's decision to make mit
